I like the 2nd one for you. Holliday is still a bit better than Manny imo, but that is more than offset by upgrading CZam (who i hate this year) and Damon to Peavy and Lilly to Broxton. Solid trade for you.

Personally I am not sure I like any of the offers on the table. If you could trade Zambrano great, but collecting a 2nd closer would be useless. No way do you hold onto two closers in a keeper league, particularly a H2H league (Ryan and Broxton). If you end up making any of these deals who would your additional keeper be. I see your need to add a quality arm to your staff and picking up Peavy is probably a decent move, but personally my offer would be looking at Rios/Peavy for Holliday/Zambrano, 2 for 2.
As far as Chris Young goes he would be a fine acquisition, but I would be amazed if you could collect two SP from him considering Sheets is probably going under the knife.
It looks like the staple of the entire deal boils down to Manny / Peavy for Holliday / CZam.
Everything else is filler, although Chris Young would be a great acquisition. I'm not sure if you would want either trade. You're giving up the best player with Holliday, and essentially for a 36 year old power hitter. In a keeper league, you have to question how long will Manny keep it up.
Personally, I wouldn't take any trade. I'd counter to see what it would take to add youth into the mix. Alexi would be a great start. Holliday, Kinsler, CZam, Lilly for Manny, Peavy, Alexi, Rios, Chris Young?
I'd take Peavy, Young and Broxton over CZam, Lilly and Ryan. I like Young, I think he's extremely underrated. Peavy and CZam both have their question marks, but there is no doubt that Peavy has much more upside. BJ Ryan's durability scares me away.
